Maryland Governor Larry Hogan didn’t hold back when he went after Donald Trump for endorsing another candidate to become the state’s next governor, slamming the former president for losing the state by more than 30 points.

The Hill reports:

“Personally, I’d prefer endorsements from people who didn’t lose Maryland by 33 points,” Hogan wrote on Twitter shortly after Trump announced that he was endorsing Maryland state Del. Daniel Cox (R) for governor in next year’s GOP primary. Hogan, who is barred from running for reelection due to term limits, is backing state Secretary of Commerce Kelly Schultz in the Maryland race.

Trump lost the 2020 presidential election in Maryland to Democratic-nominee Joe Biden by 33.2 percentage points, according to The New York Times.

Trump, in his endorsement on Monday, called Hogan a “RINO,” referring to “Republican in name only,” adding that he “has been terrible for our Country and is against the America First Movement.”

Hogan has been a sharp critic of Trump, condemning the then-president for prematurely declaring victory in the 2020 presidential race and blaming him for inciting the crowd at his rally that preceded the Capitol riots on Jan. 6.

Read Trump’s full endorsement of Dan Cox below.

“Dan Cox is an America First Patriot who is running for Governor in the Great State of Maryland. A tough lawyer, and smart businessman, Dan has done outstanding work in the Maryland General Assembly. Dan is MAGA all the way—unlike his opponent, Kelly Schultz, who was handpicked by her “boss,” RINO Larry Hogan, who has been terrible for our Country and is against the America First Movement,” Trump said though his Save America PAC. “As a State Delegate, Dan stood up to Hogan when he was supporting and meeting with Joe Biden. Dan is for low taxes, school choice, and no more lockdowns. He supports our Military, our great Vets, our Second Amendment, which is under attack like never before, and importantly, is very strong on Election Integrity. He fought against the Rigged Presidential Election every step of the way, and will bring secure Elections back to Maryland. Dan Cox has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”

Who will ultimately win out in this race? Tell us what you think in the comments below!

  1. Trump will win. No doubt about it. That is what he does – he wins. The Democrats do what they do, lose or (wink wink) “win by cheating”.

          1. They’ll never admit it. It doesn’t matter how much evidence you have. Moreover, if the machines are still in place in 2022 & 2024, you can expect the same out come. To repeat the act and expect a different result is the definition of insanity.

      1. DJT did win across the states in 2020!
        It was the highly corrupt and unstable democrat snake party that decided to manipulate ballots, voting machines, people, etc.

    1. AGREED 100%! No one with Intelligence ever wants another deluded, demonic, disastrous liberal dem to ever embarass and endanger the United States of America!
      Dems are so screwed up that they have NO IDEA of what is up and what is down,
      nor if the world is tilted or spinning round and round!

      Normal intelligent Americans could tell you that biddyboy Biden WOULD BE A COMPLETE AND UTTER FAILURE AND AN EMBARRASSMENT TO OUR NATION AND THE WORLD! The Chinese are still rolling on the ground laughing at the “SUCKER” they got to spread Covid from their Virology labs! That was tooooooo easy, but then again, biddy’s INCOMPETENCE IS OVERWHELMING!

      Of course President Trump will win by a LANDSLIDE and if he doesn’t, all HELL WILL BREAK LOOSE IN THIS COUNTRY IN CIVIL WAR THAT “WILL” REMOVE ALL THOSE IDIOT DEMS THAT ONLY CARE ABOUT THEMSELVES AND NO ONE ELSE! Time for them to live in another country! Americans do NOT want them here and they can take their ATTACK DOGS, BLM AND ANTIFA with them!!

      1. You got that right. Trump does “GOT IT”. He has it for the American people, for our military AND for our FREEDOMS. And, little Messy Hessy, even for our Second Amendment. ONE HUNDRED PERCENT AMERICAN.

  2. Hogan, you’d better get some boxes from U-Haul on your way in to work today. This country is TRUMP COUNTRY, he’s the ONLY one fighting for us, so tell your story walking.

      1. I see you are all about the same old BS! You are the puke Albert!…Keep on trolling….We see how smart you are supporting diaper needs changing ole Biden, the lover of little girls and China sell-out! Go Biden, Albert! HAHAHAHA!

      1. You mean those seven million MAIL-IN ballots that showed up at 3:30 in the morning AFTER??? those ILLEGAL votes?, that’s what you are SPEWING!!, you’re VERMIN!!

  3. Dan Cox should become the Governor of Maryland. Too many Democrats run for elected office using the Republican Party to get elected. President Trump finally is calling them out for not standing for conservative principles. If Biden won Maryland by 33 points, it was a rigged election.

  4. As usual, President Trump is 100% correct. Larry Hogan is a corrupt, incompetent and ineffective Governor. He is more interested in working on stealing funds than helping the citizens.

    Maryland politics are one of the most corrupt in the country and both parties participate. I think it is the testing ground where the political parties test out their latest types of fraud for the national elections. I lived there for 50 years and I couldn’t stand the corrupt political antics. No doubt the fact that the state basically surrounds Washington DC makes it the perfect testing ground.

  5. There is good reason that President Trump endorsed Hogan’s opponent. President Trump lost badly in Maryland because no conservative can win Maryland. Maryland is hopeless, being completely dominated by the leftist Washington DC suburbs and Baltimore. There are too few voters in sensible rural areas outside the large cities and their suburbs to counter the leftists.

  6. Hogan RINO — two synonymous words meaning the same!

    Of course Biddyboy Biden won MARYLAND, that TOTALLY BLUE STATE! Anyone running on the opposite ticket would have lost except God Himself!

    But now Americans, Independents, and even many of the disappointed democrat support base are NOT VOTING for the blue party. THEY WANT CHANGE — BIG CHANGE OF IDEOLOGIES and that will only happen if the Red Party is in control led by a President that truly LOVES AMERICA and would do anything to keep her strong and Free, President Trump!!!

    Leader Biden: go eat worms — yeah they are the new spaghetti for Incompetents! Maybe we should tell him about Escargot?! He can start finding snails 🐌 for dinner and forget the White House?

    RINO Hogan is freaking because all his lame RINO legislation is going to be “yanked and planked”!! Maryland needs to be set free and only the Red Party can do that!!

    Time for all the ignorant, self absorbed Dems AND Rinos to be dumped in a pit of cobras 🐍🐍— let’s see who can inflict poison the fastest! My bet, the Cobras WIN, the Dems a close second! But being second in this case you still lose! Don’t try to explain this to a dem, it just confuses them because CoBras to them is something more than one female can wear. Give it up. They’ll never figure it out…

  7. The “logic” of politics is a chuckle. Here we have a lame duck Governor ‘pushing’ a RINO and is “upset” because Trump prefers a supporter. Ah well, guess it’s the wood shed next week :^)

  8. Hogan, just another RINO who needs to be kicked to the curb and dumped on the ash heap of history! GO Conservatives and President Trump supporters!!!!

  9. Well in case you didn’t know it Hogan is a well-known RINO, he is exactly like the Democrats, who locked down their states and issued mask mandates, because three citizens from Montgomery County tested positive for COVID… THREE PEOPLE. He’s just another liberal dictator. So, Trump is endorsing his challenger, because he knows who Hogan really is and his not working for the people of Maryland but for him and his agenda. Just because he has an R next to his name, doesn’t mean he’s a conservative, in his case he’s a liberal through and through. It Trump hurting your wittle weelings? Poor baby.

  10. Personally, I’d prefer a Republican Governor of Maryland who realized that he’s not a real Republican or he’d NEVER win in hosed up, leftist Maryland.
    Further, ANY Republican politician that comes out against Trump, is coming out against the vast majority of his party, (ask Liz Cheney the nincompoop), and should either switch to the Hate America Party (AKA Democrat), or shut their stupid face and hope nobody notices what a poser they are.
